By Indra Kubicek A few Saturdays ago, I found myself jumping out of bed a little earlier than ideal for a Saturday morning perhaps. At 8am I was googling the details to the address which was emailed out to all the attendees the night before. The Brains Behind It All: I always love to meet young entrepreneurial women doing things they feel passionately about and the co-founders of Secret Urban Escapes are no exception. Secret Urban Escape was founded by Iris Louwerens & Natasha and offers healthy lifestyle pop up events at unique and unusual locations, designed to energise, inspire and elevate you. For this particular event they organised a yoga class, followed by healthy brunch & a chance to socialise. The Yoga Class: We definitely had to work for our breakfast! The YOGA class , taught by Kathryn, was a challenging & sweaty Rocket Yoga class and open to all levels. Kathryn's class was powerful & dynamic but she also was very encouraging. The Brunch & Social: The lovely Annie, co-founder of the healthy granola brand Spoon Cereals did an amazing job at getting us all geared up for the class, by starting off with a lemon & ginger water and a raw chocolate granola energy bite before we kicked off the class. Afterwards, we were all very spoiled with our very own breakfast bowl, which we had a chance to pre-order before the class and we chose from three delicious options of:
#1: coconut + banana porridge, topped with natural yoghurt, almond butter + Spoon granola / muesli mix.
#2: vitamin packed green smoothie bowl topped with coconut yoghurt + Spoon peanut + apple granola
#3: blueberry Bircher muesli topped with natural yoghurt, goji berries + Spoon cinnamon granola
